• Ten Reasons to Kiss Your Lover This Sunday!Sometimes it seems like there's a "day" for everything - it started with Mother's Day and Father's Day, but in July alone we're expected to celebrate National Shed Week, International Reggae Day and National Fishing Month.

    However, there is one celebration coming up on Sunday* that we're happy to get on board with: International Kissing Day!

    Let's face it - there's nothing like a good snog with the person you love to set the heart racing. With that in mind, we've put together a blog post with the top kissing facts for your enjoyment.

    To encourage some sexy smooching this weekend, I'll be choosing three commenters to win a Lovehoney Flavoured Lube Bumper Pack (£8.99), which encourage kissing all over the body!

    Read on below, and don't forget to leave a comment to be with a chance of winning.

    *It's also National Fried Chicken Day on Sunday, but we don't care so much about that one.

    Explore The Darker Side of PleasureThere's nothing like snuggling up with a good read for some alone time. That's why we choose a new Erotic Book and sexy gift combo every month, to make your reading sessions that much more special.

    Our Book of the Month for July is a collection of three short stories by New York Times best-selling author Eden Bradley.

    Just pick up a copy of The Darker Side of Pleasure during July to get a Cupid's Pink Mini Bullet Vibrator (worth £8.99!) completely free. What a bargain!

    When we asked the author what inspired this anthology, she explained "In The Darker Side of Pleasure I wanted to present kink from three different perspectives, which is important because BDSM is such a unique experience for each of us."

    Read on for a taster of Eden's writing, and find out what inspired each story...

    Lovehoney scooped two awards at the ETO show in Birmingham.

    It's all smiling faces at Lovehoney HQ today with the news that we won not one, but TWO awards over the weekend! We've been voted Best Online Retailer and Most Innovative Retailers at the annual ETO Awards.

    It's the second year running that we've been voted Best Online Retailer by our customers, and we couldn't be more delighted.

    The awards took place in Birmingham this weekend and Lovehoney was represented by Flavie, Alice and Gemma.

    Lovehoney co-owner Neal Slateford said: "This means so much to Lovehoney because the awards are chosen by the people most important to us - our customers."

    "It was another fantastic awards night from ETO and we were thrilled to do the double. Customer care is at the core of everything we do. We offer a no quibbles 365-day returns policy on products."

    Our new Customer Care hours mean you can call, live chat or email with an experienced advisor 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

    Celebrity Sex Appeal: Lingerie Inspired By Beyoncé, Miley and More!One of my favourite threads on the Lovehoney Forum has to be Lovehoney Model Doppelgangers. This is where community members (and staff!) point out models they've spotted on Lovehoney that look strikingly similar to celebrities.

    We've found doubles for everyone from Holly Willoughby to Una Healy from The Saturdays (left)!

    Recently however, while browsing the new sexy lingerie or best selling lingerie pages, I noticed outfits, not faces, that reminded me of celebrities.

    A slinky bodystocking reminiscent of an Iggy Azalea outfit perhaps, or maybe a corset named after Beyoncé. Could these chart-toppers be getting fashion inspiration from our range of sexy lingerie?

    In the spirit of fun, we've put together the top six sexy outfits inspired by A-listers like Miley Cyrus and Lady Gaga. Check out the selection below, and be sure to add your thoughts in the comments!

    Toy With Me Tuesday: A Serving Of Pleasure

    We love getting creative with sex toys at Lovehoney HQ, and since you all loved our image of kinky knitting, we decided to whip out the DOMINIX Deluxe Adjustable Nipple Clamp Bars again! This time we've styled them like chopsticks, and I think they would probably work quite well if you were in a fix!

    Glas Joystick Textured Glass Dildo

    Some people like to keep their sex toy reviews short and sweet, while others like to go into a lot of detail, going over each and every aspect of the product.

    All feedback is helpful, but this month we've been bowled over by the number of amazingly thorough reviews you've sent in, so thank you!

    This month's winner is ShannonMarlene who has written a fabulous review of the Gläs Joystick Textured Glass Dildo (£19.99). Not only was her review brilliantly descriptive, but the clear headings made it super-easy to follow and digest.

    "Glass really is great! It feels orgasmic upon entrance and the twists add the feeling of little bumps and really teases and caresses your entrance and inner walls. The head of the dildo hits your G-spot every time and gives a deeply pleasurable ache for more."

    Read the rest of ShannonMarlene's review.

    ShannonMarlene just won a £100 Lovehoney voucher for her review. Think you can write us a winning review? Read on to find out how to join in...
